Silicon Valley star Thomas Middleditch and wife Mollie Gates are going their own ways after four years of marriage.
According to court documents obtained by People, Gates filed for divorce from the actor on Thursday, May 28. She reportedly cited irreconcilable differences and listed their date of separation as May 22.
"They still care deeply for each other and will move forward as friends," a source told the outlet.
Middleditch married Gates in Aug. 2015. They did not share any children together.
Their relationship made headlines when Middleditch told Playboy in a 2019 interview that they decided to open their marriage shortly after exchanging vows.
"Only after I got married was I like, 'Mollie, I'm sorry, but we have to get nontraditional here,'" he shared. "To her credit, instead of saying 'F--k you, I'm out,' she was like, 'Let's figure this out.' To be honest, swinging has saved our marriage."
Middleditch admitted that he and his now estranged wife would "argue over it constantly," but credited their success to open lines of communication and "strict" guidelines.
"To be honest, it's a thing I wish I could take back. It was poor execution. But I've learned to keep things a little more close to the chest. It was a painful [learning experience], to be honest," he explained.
"So I think the best thing I can do is just move on," Middleditch said. "I wasn't expecting it. It's disheartening. It's embarrassing. And it's changed my relationship with the media and what I think about it."
